Monday, ABC, 9.30pm Now, this is something different. A collaboration between the ABC and Opera Australia, this new four-part series is an opera set in soapie territory. Featuring an amazing cast, including Lisa McCune (Blue Heelers), opera superstar Marina Prior, homegrown heartthrobs Hugh Sheridan, Matthew McFarlane (pictured) and talented musician Kate Miller-Heidke, this operatic comedy is from playwright Joanna Murray-Smith and composer Elena Kats-Chernin. We are invited to watch what transpires when an art critic and his wife throw a party for their friends and family to celebrate their divorce, what they call their “conscious uncoupling”, at their country estate. Hilarious and innovative.
